PRIME is a 4 piece series that explores the themes that have developed for me in what I consider to be the “Prime” of my life (so far). As a woman in her thirties, I am encountering existentialism, maternal urges, emotional abundance, and a strong moral compass. In the paintings, I illustrate each of these themes as “natural phenomenons” with titles and imagery that honor the occurrences as beautiful, fascinating, and simply natural.

“Existential Supernova” is the booming notion that nothing matters. What is my purpose? What am I doing here? Why…anything? And these questions, seemingly so big and unexplainable, paralyze us. The red in her lips is a symbol of “communication” and the desire to connect about the topic, but ironically, no conversation is had. Rather, she wears her experience - a robe of earthly reminders for grounding by way of nature and tattoos that read “Nothing”, “Matters”. Some of us have more experience expressing ourselves with symbolism.
